Perhaps it'll be better to instead ask the folks here for shops they recommend?

Personally, I started off at Cathay Photo at Peninsula Plaza, and have since made it a point to get everything I need from there.

MS colour : great service and price. Biggest problem for me is the location (AMK). Very far.

yes agree that its advisable to avoid SLS except AP

however your experience with john316 and AP(funan) seems contrary to popular opinion
personally they seem fine to be (at least)

No la, its a personal thing... I bought stuffs from John and Ap(F) before... AP(F) gave me a 'Song Brothers' feeling... while John's prices ain't exactly the best in the market..:bsmilie:

Use MRT lah. It is just opposite AMK MRT station. Walk a bit for exercise.

There was a time years ago when lucky plaza was famous for photo shop salesmen beating up tourists who decided not to buy after the salesman spent much time "entertaining" the prospective buyer.

But of course the salesmen got their side of story to tell.

Came out in news reports often enough to spread lucky plaza "fame" far and wide.

In the end I think Tourist Board got to set up task force to deal with it.

I stay in AMK, but go to Cathay Photo instead. They are well-stocked and always have the items I want. :)

The one store I will avoid is that behind TCW at Peninsula Shopping Centre (near the 1st floor escalator). Very bad service. "Ah beng" type salesmen.

That shop is called Ish***. HAve branches in Lucky Plaza and they would prefer tourists to locals. Some of the sales people also don't know theie stuff....
